McWorker: I can put it in a child-sized cup.
Me: (But then there would be no room for the soda!) No, I mean, could I have a 16 oz cup on the side?
McWoker: I can put it inside a sundae cup, just with no hot fudge.
Me: Well, I know you charge for extras sometimes; can I buy a cup?
McWorker: The child-sized cup is the smallest I have.
Me: Well, I don't want small. I'd like the 16 oz size.
McWorker: The ice cream will sink all the way down into the bottom.
Me: (Exactly! That way, there is room for soda!) That's fine. That's what I want.
Me: (Considering canceling the order and going to the convenience store instead to buy vanilla ice cream. Watching in horror as she starts with the cone so it's too late for me to change my mind.)
McWorker: (Putting my ice cream cone into a 12 oz cup.) That will be $1.06.
Me: Okay, can I have.... I'm sorry. May I please have a 16 oz cup, too?
McWorker: It will sink all the way down to the bottom.
Me: I'm taking it home, and I'd like it to be contained. (A lid would be nice, too, but I'm not pushing it.)
McWorker: (Finally hands me a 16 oz cup.)
Me: Thank you so much!
Hubby: You are a very difficult customer.
Me: It sounded very simple to me.
